Hi paper people :3 It's my 5th wallpaper and it's dedicated to Ala21ddin21:

Happy Birthday Ala ! ^^Well, it's a little late though...

Also today is the 1 year anniversary of the Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood anime. Talk about coincidence ^^

The original scan: Click here

Making of (short version):
I vectored everything using Inkscape. I made an extension for the mechanical arm. The color scheme had been tweaked a little. The background was made from scratch using Blender for its construction (perspective and shadow casting.) Using the render, I traced the outline and made the shading. Then I added transmutation effects over it.

The progress chart (click on it):

Making of (numbered with the progress chart, long version):
1 - Did the outlines with Inkscape without the extension.
2 - Positioning circles to find the right perspective.
3 - Stroke version of the extension (easier to tweak.)
4 - Final version of the extension.
5 - First step of the colors: the cape with a more saturated red.
6 - Second step of the colors: the mechanical arm with improved metal aspect.
7 - Third step of the colors: the rest.
8 - First design of the background done with Inkscape.
9 - Traced the outlines and then realized that the shadow casting will be hellish.
10 - Second design of the background done with Blender. Casted shadows are present :3
11 - Traced the outlines.
12 - Guides helped me to make the outlines right.
13 - Colors done.
14 - Added the transmutation effects and it's done.
15 - The outlines mode, insane complexity I guess ^^

Comment and favorite are highly appreciated :3

    Nice job vectoring the character and the cloth.
    The transmutation effects can use a bit more work though: the sparks you see here and there look a bit strange -- the edges are too rounded, they should be more jagged, kind of like in this scan: http://www.animepaper.net/gallery/scans/Full-Metal-Alchemist/item275328/.
    Nice effort, and great wall!

    Thank you Moutonzare !

    This looks awesome and dynamic, love how the scan turned into this nice wallpaper, always with a specific touch, the Mouton-magic style! I like the background, I know how much you suffered making the background, but this really deserved !
